I love book reviews as I love reading myself. So any books are welcomed with open arms in our house! And it seemed quite fitting what with the World Cup that we were asked to review a personalised football book from the My Magic Story range by The Magic of Barcelona .
My Magic Story
My Magic Story offers personalised stories for children across a range of different style of books. They offer a personalised book about the letters of your child’s name which I thought was fabulous and a little different too. They also offer a personalised book all about numbers, based on a child’s special date. This could be their birthday, adoption day or the day they have something exciting happen. But what caught my eye was the personalised football books. I am sure, especially at this time of the year where the World cup is in full force, many households have children who are big football fans. B is now 8 and enjoys watching football as well as being part of a local team. I thought this would be perfect for him to enjoy football from a different aspect, and even better its personalised with his name too!
Our personalised football book by The Magic Story
There were two personalised football books to choose from by The Magic Story range. There was Liverpool FC and Barcelona FC. I knew straight away that B would be more interested in Barcelona, especially has he loves international football and has the Barcelona kit!
It’s really easy to create your personalised book on their website. You simply choose your book design, add in your child’s name and you can even choose the character that best suits your child. You can even pick skin tone and hair colour! As well as this, you can also choose whether you’d like soft or hard back. What I really liked about this website is that you can preview the book first, to ensure all spellings are correct.
The personalised football book that we chose is a first of its kind being an official FC Barcelona product and the quality is excellent. B was impressed! It’s quite a large book, its bright, colourful and the story is really fun!
I love anything personalised and this book is just great for that. Not only is B’s name on the front cover, it’s also within the book’s text as well as in the illustrations. The personalised football book is a good length too, not too short but long enough for independent readers.
B loves this book, especially as it mentions a few of the Barcelona players! It’s great for independent readers or if you have a younger child who loves football, this would still be the perfect book for you to read to them. Its illustrations are bright and captivating and its a really uplifting book. It offers encouragement and focuses on team spirit – which is always great to children to learn about from an early age!
I would definitely recommend this personalised football book which is perfect for any football fan. Be sure to check out their Liverpool FC personalised book too if you have a Liverpool fan!
The cost of a personalised football book is 29.90Euros. Shipping is 4.99Euros. There is also extras such as hardback cover for additional costs.
